Continuous innovation and validation
Our commitment is to work with the leading individuals and companies in our areas of expertise to continuously develop and improve our products - delivering technology that meet needs of the future.
In the early 1970’s, research in the nuclear field was adapted to the demands of flow assurance in the oil industry - OLGA was conceived at the Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) in cooperation with the Two-Phase Flow Laboratory at SINTEF. In 1993, we were awarded the privilege of commercialising and maintaining the product. Since then, we have championed numerous R&D projects to ensure continued development and innovation around OLGA.
In the OLGA Verification and Improvement Project (OVIP), we have, in conjunction with the oil industry, collected the world’s largest database of lab and field data. This data has been used to validate and adapt the multiphase flow models. OVIP data is continuously used to improve the core of our technology to even better match the realities of operations.
Based on more than 15 years of drilling research from Rogaland Research in conjunction with major oil companies, Drillbench provides a combination of steady-state and transient models verified extensively against actual data and proven through field implementation. SPT Group is continuously updating Drillbench in combination with our OLGA technology to provide state-of–the-art solutions for drilling challenges.
Our steady-state technology was originally developed in 1968 based on research at the University of Calgary. At the request of industry, PIPEFLO, WELLFLO and FORGAS became available for commercial use shortly thereafter. Since then, we have taken full advantage of our expertise in single and multiphase flow and continued their development to remain the steady-state software of choice for many of the leading oil, gas, service, and consulting companies.
Conceptual developments and research on MEPO started at the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany, in the early 1990s. SPT Group secured its rights in 1999 and developed the technology for use in reservoir simulation through establishing a link with Eclipse. The technology was developed for commercial use through a Joint Industry Project (JIP) with ENI, Hydro, Statoil, and Total, started in 2001. The first commercial version of MEPO was released in 2004. SPT Group continues research and validation to ensure cutting edge results and expand the capabilities of the solution.
